Houston Yacht Club
One Design sailing first came to Galveston Bay in 1911 when John Bonner of the Launch Club (HYC) approached the Galveston Yacht Club about building a fleet of identical racing sailboats, in hopes of eliminating the need to handicap. As a result, John and James Bludworth built six identical boats, 18 feet long, in Galveston. These six boats, referred to as “class boats,” were privately owned by Club members, three from the Houston Launch Club (HYC) and three from the Galveston Yacht Club.

Situated along the west coast approx. 7 kilometers from the Port Dickson town centre, the Port Dickson Club was founded in 1927 and amalgamated with the Yacht Club in 1957.

180 Sail

You'll notice something different about this site. Previously this was the Corsair Community, dedicated only to Corsairs. We have broadened the reporting to include, new and innovative ideas, products and technology for all multihull sailors. We're looking for fresh ideas that create value. As we work out the kinks, we'd love to hear what you think.
